Hi guys! Having trouble finding info on this, but for best practices for ranking purposes, should I be including city and state in the  Google Plus description (story) itself, or avoiding that completely?

Yep, like Helmut says this doesn't impact ranking (if only it was that easy) and doesn't even show anywhere on Google search, only on Google Plus.
